Well, I never thought I would be writing an article on how delicious sardines are! Dr. Wilson says sardines are an excellent food and recommends them on the nutritional balancing diet. No other fish is recommended. Since sardines are a small fish they don’t have a lot of mercury in them like other fish. I can usually tell when someone eats a lot of fish by the mercury levels on their hair test.
When I first started the program, almost 3 years ago, I had gotten a can of sardines in attempt to try them. I was being over ambitious and bought the one with the bones in them. Yikes! It was too much for me to try them after merely opening the can. So I put eating sardines on the back burner. While having lunch with someone that follows the nutritional balancing program, I decided to try the sardine salad she made. She used mayonnaise and seasoning resembling as though making tuna salad. Guess what? It tasted like tuna salad. I used to love eating tuna salad! To my surprise, the sardine salad didn’t taste any different.
Very high in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D, vitamin E, calcium, selenium, coenzyme Q-10, and many minerals.
I’ve now been through about 4 cans in the past week or so and this is my new favorite food. Since I’m on the slow oxidizer diet, I mash them up and add mustard with fresh herbs from my garden. Simple, easy sardine salad. By eating the sardine salad, I can eliminate taking vitamin D and fish oil supplements since Dr. Wilson says that consuming 3 – 4 cans a week will provide the needed nutrients.
If you love tuna don’t hesitate to start eating sardines. I’m enjoying the Crown Prince boneless and skinless in olive oil from Sprouts. You can also get them off Amazon. Dr. Wilson recommends “Season’s” brand, but I read an article that Crown Prince were less fishy tasting. I will be sticking with them even though they cost more than Season’s.
